Joyful Easter Table

March 30, 2018

We love celebrating the Easter weekend.    We aren’t particularly religious but it is always a time that reminds me of family and it’s a holiday that my mother did such a phenomenal job of marking, even through college she would send me some Easter treats (and this is saying something as she’s not the most organized mom — in a good way!).     This year, we’re excited to prepare an Easter basket for our little Boy with a big rabbit stuffed animal and some eggs with dried fruit in them; boring I know but, we’re trying to hold off of lots of sweeties for now, he’s only 20 months!   We’re spending the day with our great friends which I know will be a lovely treat.   To kick off the weekend festivities, we held a little Easter-inspired dinner at home, full of fresh spring flowers and lots of beautiful brown farm eggs as decoration.

I love these placemats,  a great friend forwarded them to me a few weeks ago — she knows me so well!   Between the colorful pattern and the flowers, I decided that the table was busy enough and decided to keep it clean with a crisp white linen tablecloth, freshly pressed napkins, etched glass and crystal.

I rarely stack a napkin on a plate (I favor the old fashioned triangle under the fork method when at home) but I thought it added a nice layer here, particularly with these delicate blue flowers on top.   It also made our white plates feel more special.  I picked up this skirt today and LOVE it — I had been eyeing it for sometime and will reveal more ways to wear shortly, I can already think of a lot of opportunities for it to come in handy…

We’re so thrilled that Spring has finally arrived, I think we have been holding our breath getting through the last dregs of winter here and suddenly the city is in bloom.   I hope that everybody has a lovely, joy-filled weekend with friends and family, more soon. xx

    Happy Easter to you and your family! A lovely table setting, the placemats are stunning. For our son’s Easter basket we always including little games, toys (think puzzle books, bubbles, small balls, mini Playmobil kits and so forth) with very little candy. He’s older now and I’ve made a basket including a book, a movie and few other things that will last – and a choc. bunny!
